I have decided to upgrade to a better fan my one is extreemly noisy (old stock amd one that came with an xp2600)

I would like suggestions of fans that are actually quiet, rated to a max of 22dbA less is better, will be visiting family before xmas so want to buy one in anywhere around the london area and also leeds bradford manchester and liverpool anywhere around 50 miles from these places will also be considered.

Finally my budget £20, tight but then I am planning for a new pc in july! This is a stop gap measure. This isnt all I am getting but I am looking for suggestions of fans and places where they are stocked.

Also please no mention of internet retailers. I have decided on "real shops" as I would like to physically see the processor. Thermal paste would like advice on also.

click here= Fan

click here compound

I am using both and find them very good. Where either are stocked in stated areas, no idea whatsoever.

click here for alternative supplier, but as to high street retailers, I've seen them the pentium version in Maplin, but the price was fairly eye watering. Give you an idea if you just want to look at it first though.
